York Rotary makes 5K donation to early learning group

November 27, 2013 

— The York Rotary Club has donated more than $5,000 to the Early Learning Partnership, which promotes programs for children up to age 6 in York County.

York Rotary President Matt Dover last week gave a check to Teresa Creech, executive director of the ELP. The money was raised through the Rotary’s Nov. 9 Beach Bash fundraiser at The Garden Café.

The money was raised to support the Dolly Parton Imagination Library Initiative, which is coordinated in York County by the ELP.

Early Learning Partnership is a nonprofit group that develops and promotes programs that support the health and academic readiness of children up to age 6 in York County. It has three literacy programs, called Born To Read, Reach Out and Read and The Dolly Parton Imagination Library of York County.

Early Learning also supports four Family Resource Centers, with medical clinics for uninsured children that are staffed and operated by the four school districts in York County and Rock Hill Pediatrics.

Creech also presented a plaque to York schools Superintendent Vernon Prosser for his support of ELP.
